Dear Ms Rashein,
Please inform the people who you represent why the State of Florida continues to Discriminate against the CHILDREN going to school at the Big Pine school??? All up and down SR-5 there are Marked School Zones. Even Religious schools. Some of these school zones actually have Traffic lights and uniformed officers monitoring the intersection.
However not on Big Pine Key. What the State has chosen to Protect our children on this Widened portion is SR-5 is four (4) removable traffic cones with small signs attached to the top. (Is this configuration listed in the States MOT manual????) and some Old guy with a traffic vest with a hand held Stop sign placing and removing these Questionable traffic control devices. The speed limit days is 45 MPH, Northbound has 2 lanes, Southbound 1 lane and a turn lane between.
So Holly, please explain to your constituents why the State of Florida doesn’t care about Our School Children here on BPK but the rest of the school children in the County are well protected. It’s a State Highway and the State’s Liability.
